Scrius and FAST Search Announce Partnership to Build "Topic Pages"

Today, Scirus (part of Elsevier) announced a plan to built "topic" pages that summarize material on various scientific topics. The service will be built using FAST Search and Transfer ESP technology.

Details from the official announcement follow below.

We also want to point out that several "topic" pages Scirus have been online since early. We've posted about them here. However, as of today, they have been taken offline for a temporary amount of time.

Now, from today's announcement:

Each Topic Page will provide researchers with summaries of a specific topic written by an authority in the particular subject area, with direct links to relevant scholarly papers, abstracts and citations, supplemented with relevant websites and other online resources from Scirus. In the initial phase, authors for Topic Pages are invited through an editorial process facilitated through Elsevier publishing st
aff. As more pages are developed, additional authoring options will be considered.

At the official Topic Page launch later this year, the functionality of the Topic Pages will allow scientists and researchers to alter the content and provide feedback, allowing each topic to be shaped by the suggestions made by the research community. Based on this community approach, Topic Pages might be expanded to include capabilities such as the ability for researchers to link to their bibliographies and comment on other researchers' works.
